MWC Heavy Duty 300m Military Divers Watch in PVD Steel Case with European NATO Dial (Automatic)
SKU CODE: XLDV/AU/12H
The MWC Kampfschwimmer (Military Diver) models are one of MWC's heavy duty ranges and have additional crown protection, wider strap at 24mm (most military divers watches use a 20mm strap) and a thicker easy to grip bezel design. The thicker bezel makes it significantly easier to grip when wearing gloves and was specified in a procurement contract because these watches were specifically designed for use by Police and Military divers as well as for use in inflatables operating in cold and extreme environments.
This particular model has a European NATO format dial and is finished in a special covert matt black non reflective PVD finish, this finish is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units as well as by anti terrorist units and for various covert operations. In the PVD process the steel is not black all the way through because the color is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower quality watches which can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the color of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the case is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if the case is worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks or something similar.
If you are looking for a solid black stainless steel military watch that is both discreet and has a high water resistance rating then this top of the range model is ideal. The watch is fitted with a high quality 24 jewel automatic with hacking function to enable synchronization. The movement also has a 41 hour power reserve.
